About this Unit
Modelling data provides us with a method for inference, but there are many occurrences when interest lies in the reasoning behind the decision making. In this unit, students learn to model processes and the reasoning behind the processes using probabilistic graphical models. The unit investigates the construction and application of model-based approaches for complex systems. Students will manually create models based on prior knowledge and investigate methods of learning model structures from data, which can be used to make decisions under uncertainty. Topics covered include Monte Carlo Methods, Decision Theory, Bayesian networks, Markov networks, and the use of information theory.
